In the biggest upset of the century, the underdog team, Mineski, from Philippines takes down China powerhouse, OK.Nirvana.CN, in a nail-biting game.

Right at the start of the game, Mineski was already leading in heroes kill but a few small mistakes allowed OK.Nirvana.CN to rake in more and more kills, minimizing the kill score difference to close in on the advantage that Mineski had.

After Nirvana's carry player, Seaking, farmed up his radiance all seemed lost for the Philippine team. However they persevered and waited until their Mirana got farmed up as well. It was still unknown as who will win the game at this moment with both teams trading kills after every team fight.

Finally a nice bait from the Mineski forced Nirvana to attack their base, but Mirana and Slardar were taking down raxes at top. Mineski then initiated some great team fights and continued to push, taking down all raxes.

A final bid push from Nirvana allowed Mirana to push down all the raxes and towers. The GG call was made from Nirvana soon after.
